Three friends soon decided to also go to Canada, but I was less decided. As a fluent English speaker, I didn’t want to go anywhere with another language, but that still presented me with four options: Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia. I had good reasons to choose any of those, and would certainly have been really happy either way. In the end, I chose the United States. Going somewhere more familiar to me (I lived in Florida for two years when I was a child and visited again two more times) felt like a better idea than choosing somewhere else just to know a new country. And the US has the best colleges in the world, no question about it. A fourth friend decided to go to Australia at about the same time.
So that was that. I signed up for the US in Fall/2013, since I felt Spring/2013 was too soon. The next step would be to take my English proficiency exam. That was scheduled for October.
I’ll continue the story tomorrow…
In the meantime, I just got DuckTales Remastered and Art Academy: SketchPad, in which I drew this!
